Chef Sigler has come full circle. Having helped out by moonlighting on the line during the restaurant’s early days while he looked for a kitchen of his own, long time midtown resident Jeff Sigler continues his investment in the neighborhood by returning to take helm of the kitchen and becoming Executive Chef at The Lawrence.
Jeff began his career here by attending Le Cordon Bleu Culinary College after graduating from UGA and spending five years working in sales & management for a Fortune 500 company. Upon graduating, he quickly began to earn his stripes, rising through the ranks while working under Richard Blais at One Midtown Kitchen & Element. He continued to develop his skills cooking and leading a kitchen during stints as sous chef at Home, Eno, & Tomo. Jeff took control of the kitchen of The River Room Restaurant & Tavern in Vinings, during which time the restaurant was named the “Best Fine Dining Restaurant in Cobb County” by Cobb Life Magazine and then moved on to revamp Mac McGee Irish Pub in downtown Decatur.
In search of continual education & constant evolution Chef Sigler has apprenticed under renowned New York pastry chef Will Goldfarb and Staged in one of the world’s top French kitchens at restaurant Daniel. In addition to his regular cooking duties, Jeff is also a Garden Chef for the Atlanta Botanical Gardens.
A neighborhood resident for ten years, he hosts a now infamous annual midtown crawfish boil, and enjoys his life here in midtown supported by his lovely wife Sage and their stalwart canine companion Stella. Jeff enjoys cooking for people who enjoy good food, and hopes the neighborhood comes to love his cooking as much as he enjoys cooking for them.
